Jennie's Hat by Ezra Jack Keats was inspiration for a collaging project at the Mount Vernon Public Library. Children collaged their own hats using a wide variety of materials and glue. Students were excited about the selection of materials - ribbon, fabric, tissue paper, origami paper, maps, lego instruction booklets and so much more. Each hat was unique and expressed the children's own point of view.
